IP Encryptor - under construction

SINA is an encryptor for Internet Protocol (IP) networks, developed in the early 2000s by Secunet Security Networks AG in Essen (Germany), on behalf of the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI). It is used by many public authorities, homeland security and defence organisations in over 30 countries worldwide. SINA is an acronym for Secure Inter-Network Architecture 1 [2].

SINA is a single box solution, housed in a strong metal 19" 1U rackmount enclosure. All controls are at the front, whilst all connections reside the rear side. The unit is suitable for installation in a regular 19" rack and provides a highly secure link between two or more physical networks.   

SINA is the only IP-based product that is approved by the BSI for information security up to the levels of SECRET, NATO SECRET and SECRET UE. According to the company brochure, nearly 100,000 installations had been installed in over 30 countries by Janury 2017 [2].
